Call for Abstracts: 2021 Preparedness Summit
The abstract submission period for the 2021 Preparedness Summit (April 12-15, 2021; Atlanta, GA and virtually) is officially open
! As the enduring COVID-19 pandemic continues to intersect with other crises, from hurricanes to wildfires and beyond, we are reminded that public health threats are always looming and crises are just around the corner. This year’s theme, When Crisis is Commonplace: Transforming Your Community’s Public Health Preparedness Practices
, will focus on how we must adapt our preparedness and response infrastructure to this reality and will highlight tools, resources, and policies that enable us to meet the many challenges we as public health professionals continue to face every day.
As the first and longest running national preparedness conference, the Preparedness Summit is the place for you to reenergize while gaining the knowledge, resources, and relationships necessary to prepare for and respond to public health emergencies. Don't miss your chance to join more than 1,900 attendees—who work in all levels of government (local, state, and federal), emergency management, volunteer organizations, healthcare coalitions, and academia—to share best practices, build partnerships, advance your skillset, and take away innovative solutions and practical strategies to address the vulnerabilities in our nation's health security system.
